The humans and cows celebrate as Chelsea rises to the top of Europe. I congratulate Mendy. Today, I think he is among the top 3 shot stoppers in the world. His agility, ahead-thinking, and leadership on the bars should inspire other African goalkeepers. The legendary Oliver de Coque will sing “egwu oma si na chukwu” [Good music comes from God]; I think good football comes from packaging. Europe is peerless on making shows out of round leathers. Congratulations Mendy, Chelsea, etc.
Three more years and you may begin to think of joining the greats of Chelsea from Africa: Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Mikel John Obi, and Michael Essien. Yet, my all-time best goalkeeper remains Ghana’s Edward Ansah of Iwuanyanwu Nationale. Even when the Nationale lost those days, he would not fail to catch a ball thrown by kids, as they returned from Dan Anyiam Stadium to Ikenegbu Layout Extension in Owerri.
